Howard L. Lieberman


Although not Scandinavian, Howard Lieberman moved to the Twin Cities in 1990 after 16 years in New York, where he practiced corporate and tax law at two midtown Manhattan law firms. Howard also spent some time as a professional wine buyer and marketing manager in the East Village.

An accomplished legal recruiter, Howard has worked with clients and candidates all over the world and at every level of experience. Practice group and law firm mergers have been a particular focus of his for the last several years.

Howard lives on Lily Lake in the once bucolic but now overdeveloped town of Stillwater, Minnesota, where he ice fishes sporadically, skis often, and sometimes misses New York more than he likes to admit.
